A new pickup...

I got this watch (from a friend) on my recent holiday. It is basically a brand less watch but I like it. I like the design and layout of the watch dial.

The watch...

I am sure the watch is assembled in China with parts sourced from the same place. But I have to say that I am pretty impressed by the overall build quality. I was told that it retails around USD150 to USD200. It comes in at 44mm.

I do like the fact that the sweep seconds register is at the 6 o'clock position instead of the usual 9 o'clock. And the lume on the watch is not bad. It glows blue (see post below). 

The onion crown. 

The Asian movement is based on the Unitas/ ETA 6498. I like the display back and the attempts to decorate the movement.

Closer view of the movement. Who knows, maybe I might just change the movement. I am sure I have an ETA 6498 somewhere. :)

The long hand of the fast/ slow indicator reminds me of another watch that have the same type display.

Closer view. 

The leather strap. The strap will be changed eventually. Perhaps this time I will try a different manufacturer. 

The pin buckle... looks familiar? Well the design of the strap is also familiar no? I will review the watch soon. :)
